Since I’m almost going back home to the cold Netherlands, I’m trying to enjoy life to the fullest… And I gotta admit, I’m succeeding pretty well so far. Sunday night I went dancing with my mum at Chirincana, the bar where you can’t see anything at night because of the dust that is filling the air from countless barefoot, dancing, hippy feet. So you can imagine that after a couple of beers, shots of hierbas and mojito’s – waking up at 6:30 a.m. is not an ideal situation. We rented a roundtrip to the neighbor island 🌴 Formentera. Upon arrival we got a scooter to cruise the day away from one beach to the other. Formentera is often referred to as the Caribbean of Europe, and this is absolutely true. With just 40 min from Ibiza you set foot on what seems to be Jamaica. During your trip on the ferry you might even be lucky enough to spot some dolphins! So what did we do and where did we go?
After some delays my mum and I entered the ferry around 10:45 a.m from Playa den Bossa, next to the port of Ibiza. We had a very bumpy ride to wake us and our hangovers up, making sure we’d still be alive once arriving at the port of our destination. Once we had indeed arrived at Formentera we picked up our scooter for the day and started cruising around. The first stop we made was at Playa Es Arenals. We drove from the port down the nature parc of La Salina, which is a beautiful landscape of pink watered reservates. After getting lost once or twice, we arrived at Es Arenals, which was in the end of the day our favorite! This is a wide light sanded beach with gorgeous transparent waters, reminiscent of images from the Blue Lagoon. After spending some time here we drove further on the scooter, just without any destination in mind – getting to know the island. After our roadtrip we ended at the most famous beach of Formentera, and also the most crowded, Les Illetes. I had been here before when we went on a boat of a friend – but still this place amazed me. We grabbed lunch at the Pirate Kiosk in the corner and fueled up our stomachs for the rest of the day. After spending some time here we took our scooter again and drove down some small country roads leading us to beautiful hidden beach. Which I don’t remember the name of.
